While going to the movies can be extremely expensive, those who have an appreciation for the art of film-making can enjoy free screenings at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art. Throughout the school semesters on Thursdays and Sundays, the museum selects various art programs such as films, artist talk and poetry readings to present to the community. JCSM features documentary and narrative films that have screened at prestigious festivals and on major networks.
These films are presented by programs such as the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, Created Equal, “Auburn Connects! Common Book Program”, The Lost Bird Project and American Transport. Film screenings like The Lost Bird Project and FILM@JCSM: American Transport are selected in accordance with the exhibitions on view. The Southern Circuit brings contemporary artists’ films that address issues of race and culture to the museum, while Created Equal and “Auburn Connects! Common Book Program” promote dialogue.
Following the program on Thursdays, the Museum Café is open from 5 to 8 pm with live jazz from 6 to 8 p.m. This gives participants the opportunity listen to live musical performances while enjoying food and wine, and explore the different pieces of artwork throughout the galleries.
It is encouraged that participants register in advance via Eventbrite to help estimate limited auditorium seating, and if possible, please print your ticket to help staff with museum evaluations and communications.
